After two world wars, Korea, Vietnam, the Gulf war, Iraq and Afghanistan, the American Civil War still remains the bloodiest war in our country’s history. An estimated 620,000 men lost their lives in places with names like Antietam, Gettysburg, Shiloh and Vicksburg. All allegedly, in the name of ending slavery, but in all earnest it was rather a struggle, to force seceded states back to the Union. The ending of slavery was a byproduct, not the primary goal.
Back then, the Democrats treated the land of Dixie as if it were their fiefdom. When they lost control of the White House in 1860, they were livid. This time, they hadn’t lost it to the tepid, elitist Whig Party but the upstart Republicans, who had agitated for an end to slavery. By the time Abraham Lincoln took office in March of 1861, seven Southern states had seceded, and four more would eventually join the Confederate States of America. But that could not stand. The union had to be preserved.
Four years later, the South laid in tatters, slavery as an institution had been destroyed, and the secession had been corrected. Lesson learned, right? Not! It may be a century and a half later, but the Democrats haven’t learned their lesson well enough. In fact, after Trump’s election, there were plenty of liberals talking about a civil war. Sure, slavery may not be the main focus, but there’s a different kind of war being perpetrated. A war for the identity and soul of America.
It’s obvious that the central tenet of the Democrat Party platform is now hatred and contempt for our founding, our Founders, our Constitution, and traditional, mainstream Americans. Taking their cue from the elites in Europe and Canada, who are stripping ideological dissenters of their free speech rights and religious freedoms, the American leftist elite are moving to solidify their hold on power here with the eager assistance of tech companies, woke corporations and government itself.
Do I think there will be another civil war? No, not likely but there’s always the specter of one. Although a second civil war is very unlikely, never underestimate leftist ideologues and their irrational hatred for anything that challenges their belief system and undermines their authority. Hatred often leads to kinetic action and leftists aren’t shy of exploiting violence. It’s their quintessential means to an end.
Those who think history began when their Demigod Obama was elected, don’t understand the dangerous game they are playing when they talk about how they want to impose their Blue values and vision upon red America.
The Godless Democrats are 0-1 in insurrections, and if they went for another round, they would be 0-2. It’s a matter of terrain, logistics and numbers. Numbers accentuated with the combat multipliers of faith, gun culture, military and law enforcement experience, and what the woke mob calls toxic masculinity, patriotism and morale, all of which, are found abundantly in conservatives.
And there is always the active military. A military that consists of over 70% pro-America, pro-Constitution soldiers, sailors, airmen and marines, who would more likely than not, side with the “right“ regardless of the “woke“ Pentagon brass and what’s left of their Obama purged Officer corp.
Let’s talk terrain and numbers. Remember the famous red v. blue voting map? There is a lot of red while coastal areas have the few blue megacities like Los Angeles and New York with some interior enclaves like Chicago. That is a lot of territory for a counter-insurgent force to control, something strategically impossible.
The red is where the food is grown, the oil pumped, the electricity generated and through which everything, is transported. And that red space is filled with hundreds of millions of American with many arms and a fairly large percentage that have both military training and combat experience.
The Democrat threat to peace is based on its policies designed to deprive normal Americans of their right to speak freely, to worship freely, and to defend themselves and their rights with firearms. Make no mistake, millions of normal Americans are willing to risk death to defend those rights. In fact, many swore to do so when they entered our military or law enforcement.
But let’s be real here. Who is the leftist big talker willing to die to impose their fascist dream of censorship, religious oppression, and disarmament on normal Americans?
Is it the screeching feminist at an abortion rally? The college professor or snowflake at Yale? Is it an emasculated, vagina hat wearing eunuch going to suit up in body armor? Would the Vox columnist at the NYT or that propagandist at MSNBC going to grab a M4? Are the Hollywood degenerates or the empty suits in D.C. going to wear a Kevlar helmet? I seriously doubt it.
The next time a Democrat starts talking tough about armed conflict, show him the brutal article written on the matter by Colonel Kurt Schlichter. It is a reality check on any leftist fantasy of initiating a civil war against center right America. Oh, and give him a change of underwear while you’re at it.
But all jest aside, ultimately who wins a civil war will depend on one and only one critical factor. Whose side the military takes.
